If your water accounts are sky high, why not consider another alternative? Artificial lawns can be easily installed and look great for years, they also require little or no maintenance. You also never need to be concerned about watering the lawn again. Here is the low down:
Defining artificial lawn:
Artificial lawn is a technologically advanced substitute for the real thing. They are made of artificial materials that are UV and weather proof. This means that they will not fade or otherwise wear down. The material is set in special sand and rubber so it has a pleasant feel to walk over. Another defining point is the 15 to 20 year lifetime of the lawn – longer than any natural lawn without the watering and maintenance (including watering and cleaning, mowing and so-on).
What are the exact water savings?
There is a great deal of water to be saved in terms of not having to water the artificial lawn. Statistically it has been shown that for a 50m2 lawn there is a 30000 litre per annum consumption. To keep the lawn looking good the consumption goes up even more depending on your area of residence, the hotter and drier, the more water you consume. These are mind blowing figures and based on an average figure of 30000 litres the cost of this is approximately $200 per year. By installing an artificial lawn you can save this amount which really comes in handy for other bills. The price of this commodity is also most likely going up as water gets scarcer so count on saving even more simply by installing an artificial lawn that consumes no water.
